10:00am
lion enclosure when he noticed this. barking. it was a dog. the zoo has been since then shut down. we more of the real thing with news in the news room with wolf blitzer. >> these are complicated issues. i know you think it's simple and it's not. >> that was part of the heated debate between one father and chris christie. he's been considering a medical marijuana bill that one father says could save his daughter. we're waiting to see if he will respond to the plea. accuser number 16 points the
10:01am
finger at the san diego mayor. >> he came up to me without any warning when i was outside going home and hugged me and kissed me. i was appalled. >> will this push him to step down? the first lady, michelle obama sticking by her comment that she's like a single mother. i'm wolf blitzer in washington. we're keeping the eye on tennessthe market as when he had into the weekend. markets appear to be limping along. one analyst says traders are still a bit shell shocked now. you see the dow down 22 points. we'll continue to watch the dow jones. let's get to a major decision fa facing the new jersey governor. he said he will announce whether
10:02am
or not he will sign a medical marijuana bill passed by the new jersey assembly two months ago. it will make a certain form available to children. a father who's little girl suffers from seizures con fronted the mayor sgovernor saying don't let my daughter die. he said it's a complicated issue. sanjay, why is this so complicated? the state passed the measure. polls show strong support for medical marijuana. what are the concerns? >> in this particular case it probably revolves around the fact that vivian is a child, a young child. i think this is one of those situations when you look at the science and look at the impact of medications, you want to look at studies and finding studies
10:03am
on adults is hard and finding them on children is harder. with this particular situation you don't have the overwhelm big studies. you're also talking about a specific strain of marijuana. people think of it as being one thing but it's many different strains including strains that are high in cbd, which is the medicinal part and low in thc. they also want to have this approved as an edible because you can't imagine a young child smoking this or even vaporizing this. in the documentary we talked about having it available as an oil that could be taken underneath the tongue. there are different facets. i'm sure those are some of the issues being weighed.
10:04am
>> i watched your excellent one hour documentary that you entitled "weed." you came around and believe there's a purpose of medical marijuana. you went to israel and spoke to israeli doctors who were skeptical themselves but they have now come around including giving some medical marijuana for kids who need it. explain what you discovered. >> if you look at the research in israel it's quite extraordinary. rafael was one of the first people to isolate thc, one of the psycho active components of marijuana. they have a long history of looking at this. even within hospitals they are doing this research. as i mentioned it's very difficult to do research in the united states for lots of
10:05am
reasons. you have these trials going on in hospitals. they are looking at it for all different conditions, including for children and specifically for seizure disorders. there's some remarkable science coming out of israel. >> maybe they should go to israel and take their little girl and see what they can do? >> bryan wilson is thinking of moving to colorado or a state where it's legalized. that's something he's considered. the little girl from the documentary is getting her medicine in colorado but she cannot leave the state. she's a prisoner in her own state because of the way these federal laws work. it's a very tough situation but bryan wilson talked about moving. >> he might be desperate. he may have no choice. thanks very much. we're awaiting the governor's
10:06am
decision. as soon as he makes that decision we'll let our viewers know. you can see sanjay's special entitled "weed," it will air again tonight. i highly recommend you do just that. 10:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. thank you. >> thank you, wolf. the mayor of san diego, the list of women is growing. women who say the mayor groped them, made sexual advances, sometimes day after day. the mayor is mia. he's left the behavior therapy program. we haven't been able to see him on get him on the phone. we know the identity of the latest woman who says the mayor would not let her work in peace. >> reporter: walking slowly, assisted by a cane, 67-year-old great grandmother says play your bob filner harassed her for months on the job.

10:08am
card statement showing charge ls at a san diego hotel, restaurants that are indeed, says the city attorney, personal expenses. >> somebody is so brazen and abusive and personal often, often that translates into the same type of conduct in financial affairs. >> the women who say he was sexually inappropriate or this investigation of his finances? >> reporter: they're equally important. they're equally damaging. here is the difference. the city attorney believes in as far as the expenditures, the credit card charges is in black and white. he feels he can move rapidly and quickly. this may be the ticket to get the mayor out quickly. remember there's this recall effort under way. >> thank you.
10:09am
we'll keep our eye on it. turning 50 can be a big deal. michelle obama is marking the milestone this year. what have you discovered? >> parade is putting out a wide interview this sunday. she talked about her let's move campaign and not putting too much pressure on her daughter malia and she spoke about how for young children having an african-american in the white house expands their span of opportunity in their mind. she says i've never felt more confiden confident in myself, i'm thinking about my own health and making sure i eat and exercise and watching the aches and
10:10am
pains. i want be this really fly 90-year-old fp for those that don't flow, it's good to be fly. she asked if she could see a woman president in her lifetime. she said i think this country is ready for it. she was specifically asked who former first lady hillary clinton could get the job. she declined to answer that. she says she doesn't want to get lead of her on that. >> she took a lot of flak for saying at times she felt like a single mother. is she sticking by that in this magazine interview? >> she is. she says she knows her husband, the president, has huge responsibility. when it comes to making phone calls for what dance classes thatly take, he's not involved. that's how she addressed that point. >> thank you. a new warning in florida,
10:11am
watch out for the brain eating ameba. why the stay issued there warning after another kid contracted the parasite. oprah winfrey on the new movie and why she thinks race was factor in the trayvon martin case. >> a lot of people if they think they're not using the n word themselves, they physically are not using it themselves and don not harbor ill will towards black people that it's not racist. to me it's ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved. protecting your pup from getting injured in car accident may be more difficult than you think. how pet safety belts play not keep your little dog safe. this is the cnn news room. [% this day calls you.
10:12am

10:16am
we can tell you that our crew, we witnessed between 40 and 50 people who were injured. they appeared to be unarmed and appeared to have been shot. what makes reporting on those clashes so difficult is the fact it's impossible to figure out who starts these gunfights. you have authorities and police accusing the muslim brotherhood, protesters say no. it's security forces who fire first. whoever starts these fight, the response by security forces is usual usually ferocious. based on what we saw today it looks like that's what happened again with security forces.
10:17am
there was their way of saying we're not done fighting. we're still standing. as soon as they came out, within an hour or two there war clashes with security forces. this is where there country stands in a conflict with no indication of being resolved any time soon with both sides taking on a war-like mentality and us against this attitude. >> what's been the reaction to president obama's statement yesterday. a statement cancelling joint u.s. egyptian military exercises scheduled for next month. at the same time keeping in place $1.5 billion a year and economic assistance for the u.s. taxpayers to egypt. how are the folks in cairo reacting to the president of the united states?
10:18am
>> reporter: if mr. obama could come out and cut ties with egypt. he didn't do that. he cancelled joint military exercises. for the most part they displiszdisplisz dismissed his comments. they don't want anyone interf e interfering with an internal matter. they haven't found a solution to end their conflict. >> stay safe. we'll stay in touch. reza is on the ground force. the national security agency and the president have rejected charges that secret surveillance programs violate americans privacy.
10:19am

10:25am
>> how are the two children doing? >> reporter: based on some facebook postings things do not look like they're going very well. his parents wrote we're still in the storm and it seems to be getting worse. his brother posted it shouldn't have to be like this. as a big brother i still have so many things to show him. i am happy to say cay lee seems to be doing well. she was able to write some words on a white board. he's able to communicate and stand with assistance for brief periods of time. she is able too write now. as we said it's so amazing that she lived. so few people do live through this infection. >> let's hope for the best for both of these kids. thank you. oprah winfrey sits down with anderson cooper and opening up about her new film "the butler"

celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit celebrex.com and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.

10:30am
the rescue, saturday night at 6:30 p.m. saturday and sunday 6:30 p.m. oprah winfrey returns to the big screen after a 15-year gap. she stars with forest whittaker in "the butler" which opens nationwide today. it's based on a true story. it chases the dramatic upheavals of america. >> in the heat of the night with sydney portier. >> he's a white man's fantasy of what he wants us to be. >> what are you talking about? he's breaking down barriers for all of us. >> oprah and wittaker sat down with anderson.
10:31am
here is the first part of that interview. >> you talked about that coming at this important time and in the trayvon martin case there's been a discussion. i saw a poll that the majority says this is a discussion that needs to be had. majority of whites say too much is being made of this discussion. >> i know. i know. that's why i love the film in light of this discussion is because it brings context to the discussion. when you look at the film beginning with that lynching scene and walking into obama's office, look a at what has happened in the sfpan of one man's lifetime. >> now it's moving in and we're looking at trayvon and oscar grant and recognizing that we have to move ourselves forward in this chain.
10:32am
in order for us to achieve our potential. >> emmett till is a symbol for those times as trayvon martin is a symbol for these times. there are ultimate trayvon martin's whose name never makes the newspapers or headlines. the circumstances surrounding that allowed it to be. there were multiple lynches whose names are not remembered. >> it's interesting how people from different backgrounds see there. i talked to a juror on the case who clearly did not understand or did not feel linked to trayvon martin. felt connected to george zimmerman in a way but not trayvon martin. i wonder if she felt race was not a part of this at all. >> people feel it's race because they don't call it race. they don't say -- what i found
10:33am
too is a lot of people if they think they're not using the n word themselves and do not have, harbor ill-will towards black people that it's not racist. to me, it's ridiculous to look at that case and not to think race was involved. >> you talk about the n word. in the film it's used very early on. it's not just used by the guys on the plantation, it's used by lbj and in those recordings you hear him. people in the kitchen are saying, negro and somebody says when did he start to use that word. he always uses the n word. was that hard for you? i know you've spoken publicly about the importance of not using that word. >> i think it depends on the context of the time in which you were raised. i was raised in the '60s.
10:34am
not only am i a student of history, it's not part of who i am to use that word. i understand why other people do. it's impossible for me to do it because i know the history. i know that for so many of my relatives whom i don't know, who i don't know by name, people i'm connected to, that was the last word they heard as they were being strung up by a tree. that was the last sense of degradation that they experienced. out of respect to those who have come before and the price that they paid to rid themselves of being relegated to that word, i just don't use it. >> more of anderson's interview will air later tonight with
10:35am
oprah 8:00 a.m. eastern. check it out. she hasn't announced she's running for president in 2016 but she's causing quite a stir. why hillary clinton is at the center of a debate between the rnc and some television networks. humans. we are beautifully imperfect creatures living in an imperfect world. that's why liberty mutual insurance has your back,

10:37am
10:38am
the republican national commission approved a resolution vowing to exclude cnn and the debates in the 2016 election. they are upset about both programs to produce programs about hillary clinton. >> for the first time our party rules allow us to take action on these debates, it's is time that
10:39am
we do what's right for our party and our candidates and by the way, it's the right thing to do for our voters. >> let's bring in our chief political correspondent. explain why the rnc is so upset over these hillary clinton projects. because they think they will be info mer shls. they perceive that she's the front-runner if she wants to be. they believe this is merely a way to set up her run for the presidency. there's also a sort of a deeper problem for the republicans and that is they didn't like the debates. they didn't like the number of debates in the last primary season, 20 of them. they didn't like the tone of some of the debates and they didn't like some of the answers. what happened, there were many
10:40am
pivotal moments that affected the primaries but also affected the general race. in particular when mitt romney talked about self-deportation that came back again and again and again. it's the desire of the republican national committee to limit the number of the debates because they think the candidates should be out on the trial and it's the desire of them to put in front of these candidates someone that they say will talk about substance more than the other moderators did. we could argue all day about whether that's so or not. that's how the rnc perceives it ans the also true that the republicans have little use for the mainstream media because they think everyone is against them. it's a good way to get the party kind of revved up for the midterms as well. >> cnn just released a statement responding to this resolution passed by the rnc.
10:41am
this document ri will be a felon-fiction look at the life of a former first lady and secretary of the state. the project is in the very early stages of development, months from come plegs with most of the rorting and the interviewing still to be done. therefore speculation about the final program is just that. the statement adds we encouraged all interested parties to wait until the program premiers before judgments are made. the rnc was not willing to do that. you make a good point. this negative response does touch a bigger issue. this has been true that the two things that rev up republicans are the complaint liberal media
10:42am
that's not being fair and who will appoint supreme court justices. they tend to really get the base excited. think believe there's a bias against them and may were made to talk about trivial issues during the debate. part of what those debates do is give an even platform to those that don't have the money to campaign in the way that front runners do. it will be interesting. they say they will punish candidates who agree to debates that are outside what the republican party agrees to. they also know you can not have it welcome a convention. you can thot have debates that are seen a infomercials either.
10:43am
>> thanks very much. we'll have more on this later today in the "situation room." candy has invited senator john mccain back from egypt. we'll see you then. thank you. coming up, protecting your little dog from getting injured in car accident play be a little bit more difficult than you think. how pet safety belts play not keep that dog safe. ar insurance. yep, everybody knows that. well, did you know some owls aren't that wise? don't forget i'm having brunch with meghan tomorrow. who? meghan, my coworker. who? seriously? you've met her like three times. who?

10:46am
is a safety focus group is making sure everyone survives an accident, even your dog. they tested a bunch of car belts and found that most of them are not, not very helpful in crash. just a note about this report. the dogs in the crash test look real but they're not. here is cnn's renee marsh. >> when i slammed on the breaks to avoid an accident maggie went flying. >> reporter: her english cocker spaniel was injured when she got tangled in the restraint. test video shows what can happen when a dog is launched off the seat during a crash. her organize, the center for pet safety started testing dog harnesses in 2011. all four tested failed. >> what we're seeing is that even though the dog is attached, the dog continues to launch off
10:47am
the seat. >> crash tests done found the majority of the restraints on the market don't keep your pet on the seat at the point of impact. manufacturers for restranints sy this could save your life. >> there's a lot of innovation that continues. we keep on improving these. >> reporter: it show a brown dog restrained and a black and doggone that goes flying. any dog thharness that keeps th from becoming a distraction does nothing. >> the dog is returning around in the car. >> reporter: not every manufacturer does adequate testing and wants an industry standard. for now she says it's up to owners to educate themselves. >> you want to first look for the crash video posted by the manufacturer to their website.
10:48am
if the dog launches off the seat there's a risk there. >> the group says that this isn't just a concern for the animal's safety but if the dog launches from the seat that could injure the people in the car, wolf. >> good report. thanks very much. a huge change is coming to baseball. it will expand instant replays. umpires won't have a say. we'll explain after this quick break. let's leave the deals to hotels.com. perfect! yep, and no angry bears. up to 30% off. only at hotels.com.

10:50am
10:51am
major league baseball as we know it is about to change. starting the 2014 season, instant replay will be allowed for nearly every umpire call. that's a huge change of heart for the commissioner bud selig who for years has resisted calls to allow replay reviews. the shift will be significant. managers will be able to challenge every play except balls and strikes. joining us by skype from new jersey, bleacher reports national lead writer, dan levy. explain, first of all, how this is supposed to work. >> well, the umpires will be able to challenge once within the first six innings. then twice in the final three innings, which can help them. and then the challenge will go up to baseball's offices if it's approved. it won't be in the hands of the umpires on the field which has been a big problem. because egos get involved. umpires don't want to admit that
10:52am
they're wrong. they're sort of taking it out of the hands of the local umpires and putting it into a system in major league baseball's offices much like the nhl does right now which can only help. >> first of all, why did bud selig change his mind? >> well, that's an unbelievable question. who knows. it's great that he did finally. bud selig has been a renowned technophobe. >> baseball is a relatively slow game. this will make it even slower if they have to hit a pause while there's a review of the play, right? >> they actually say that it's going to make the game faster. because they've done research that the average argument between a manager and an umpire takes three minutes. they suggest the average replay is only going to talk about 90 seconds. if you think about that over the course of the game it could shorten it, not lengthen it. i don't thipg that's going to happen. i think for the first year or two it's probably going to lengthen it. ultimately this is a thing that could help four or five years
10:53am
down the line. it's going to be good for the game and i do think eventually it could speed up the game. >> if there are really brutal calls this will clarify it. sometimes a brutal call can cost you a win. maybe a pennant or world series or whatever. so it's probably very, very important. explain also in the first six innings, you can have one challenge. and in the last few innings, seventh, eighth and ninth innings, if you go into extra innings you can have two more. what's the theory behind that? >> it allows the umpires a little bit of leeway early on if they miss a challenge. they give them the challenges later in the games. the essence is they don't -- they want to get every call right but they don't want to bog the game down with challenges on every play. they limit it to three challenges per umpire hoping they'll use them judiciously when they matter most. it's sort of like the nfl does with their challenges. if the umpire gets it right, they're able to retain it. there could be situations where they challenge even more than three in a game. >> explain that. i didn't follow exactly that
10:54am
last point. go ahead and elaborate. >> if they challenge a play and the challenge is upheld, they'll maintain that challenge to use it in another inning later in the game. if a call is overturned because the umpire -- because the manager challenged, they'll save that for later. and that's smart. because, look, a lot of this is going to put the onus on getting the calls right on the manager. which i think is what baseball wants. they don't want it to be on the umpires. they don't want all of us going on twitter and yelling about the umpires. they want us yelling about the managers making the bad decisions. >> dan levy explaining what's going to be a huge, huge change in major league baseball for all of us to watch starting next season. thanks very much, dan, for that report. >> thanks, wolf. >> dan is with bleacher report. you can also follow him on cnn.com. it's considered a rare find. a new mammal has been discovered. it's being considered a cross between a cat and a bear. we're going to show you. stay with us. this day calls you.
